she might eventually be as cool as us

Did a post a while ago on glasses in Hitchcock here and thought it might be fun to look at glasses and the tropes they call up in Gotham.

Ed’s probably the first character who springs to mind when you think of glasses.  In season one, his glasses represent three aspects of his personality: his ‘geeky’ social awkwardness; his analytical intelligence and eye for detail, and his ability to be clinical and detached.

It’s interesting that when we see Ed’s mirror self, he isn’t wearing glasses.  This reinforces the image of Ed in glasses as the butt of jokes, the geeky kid.  MirrorEd is frustrated by Ed’s lack of agression and his many social failures and embodies all the confidence that Ed, at this point, cannot manifest (he presumably doesn’t lack it: if his mirror self has it - it’s just buried).  His hair is more stylish, his posture is better, his voice is deeper, and - noticeably - the glasses are gone.

The one where the Sheriff finds Derek in Stiles’s room in a compromising position and Derek maybe makes it worse. (Or better.)
Derek POV. Because this is a thing there needs to be more of.

“Be cool, Dad, we’ve decided to con Grandma.”

(Or, the one where the Stilinski men drag Derek to Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma’s and she gets the right wrong idea.)

Sending Out an S.O.S. by fauvistfly

(1/1 I 6,522 I Teen I Sterek)

Derek decides he might be ready to start dating again, so the pack creates a signal that Derek can use if he ever needs saving from an uncomfortable situation. The signal somehow comes to mean that Stiles will pretend to be Derek’s boyfriend. Eventually, Stiles saves Derek so many times that the lines begin to blur.

In which there are fake boyfriends, flirting, music festivals, a bit with a puppy, a cameo by Jack Falahee, and honest kissing.

Cross a Canyon (with a broken limb) by theroguesgambit

(1/1 I 18,009 I Teen I Sterek)

“You never graduated,” Stiles says, just to say it. To test it out in the open air. That’s… huh.

Stiles spends his senior year battling troll-gremlins, taking on an unexpected tutoring job, and definitely not falling for a certain sourwolf (even though everyone else seems to think he is).

Take Me Back To The Start by thingcalledlove

(13/13 I 25,863 I Mature I Sterek, Scallison, Berica, Jydia I Actor!Derek)

Derek had never intended to be named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. It just sort of happens.

[Or, in which Derek stumbles into stardom, becoming the next big thing and Stiles somehow stumbles (read: gets pushed unwillingly by the rest of the pack) into the role of Derek’s PR boyfriend.]

Electricity In the Contact by ladyblahblah

(6/6 I 27,067 I Sterek, Scallison I Mates)

In which Derek has been invited to the Greater Pacific Northwest Alpha Symposium (that’s not what it’s called, Stiles, stop saying that), and showing up unattached would mean an arranged marriage. When the rest of the pack objects, he agrees to let Stiles come along to pose as his mate. Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.

A Cunning Plan by yodasyoyo

Stiles has a plan to get Lydia Martin to notice him. Derek is not impressed.

Not Your Disney Romance by tylerfucklin (zimothy)

(5/5 I 42,065 I Mature I Sterek)

After a long-forgotten agreement of an arranged marriage between Derek and the daughter of another pack’s alpha resurfaces, Stiles takes it upon himself to become the most amazing fake fiancé that a clueless, desperate alpha werewolf could wish for.

He’s Not Mine by Sunnee

(19/19 I 68,534 I Explicit I Sterek I Accidental Baby Acquisition)

Derek comes home to find an abandoned werebaby on his front porch and Stiles volunteers to help him out. Surprisingly, that is just the beginning of his problems.

With or Without You by KouriArashi

(13/13 I 62,556 I Teen I Sterek I Mating Rituals)

Derek thinks that the mating rituals are overly romanticized bullshit, but claiming a mate and defending them from challengers is something werewolves do, and his pack can’t afford to appear weak after the fire. Especially not when Deucalion and his friends are in town for the rituals. Enter Stiles Stilinski, who offers to let Derek claim him so he won’t be overrun at the ceremonies. Nothing goes as expected.

According to Plans by eldee

(6/6 I 72,744 I Explicit I Sterek, Berica, Scallison, Jydia)

Five times Stiles and Derek pretend to be boyfriends, and the one time they didn’t have to pretend at all. (Or: in which Stiles’ plan for senior year is completely ruined by a supernatural creature stalking him.)  

Gravity’s Got Nothing on You by zosofi

(11/ I 83,980 I Explicit I Sterek I Magic)

“Three weeks,” Derek says.

“Still don’t want to,” Stiles says.

“I’ll pay you,” Derek says, and that… that has Stiles interested. Alf’s Antique’s may be a great job, but it’s not a high-paying job, and half of Stiles’s tuition is coming from financial aid, so…

“How much,” Stiles asks, “are we talking here? Because I know your family, dude. And it’ll be kind of awkward after.“

“My family thinks you’re some sort of fucking gift to the world,” Derek seethes, like he’s jealous, “they’ll probably be pissed at me when we break it off, so don’t worry about that. Five hundred bucks.”

“A thousand,” Stiles says, because screw ethics. Also, the Hale family is loaded. Derek can deal.

specialagentartemis  asked:

Do you know how the other popular tumblr bots - sbkalny, jenny, peridot, leffy, etc . - work? Do they learn the same way as SKYLAR, from synthesizing from words said to them? And, if they're all learning from each other, might they eventually develop a uniquely "robot dialect" of English with weird rules based on constant reinforcement of just-off English text? Because that would be so cool.

Jenny doesn’t learn AFAIK, since she doesn’t interact with people. She has a page on how she works here.

Sbnkalny and Leffy are the same bot in that they use the same code. They both learn from people talking to them. I never read up on how peridot works, but she’s clearly capable of learning as well. 

That all being said, the answer’s kind of yes and no. I don’t think they’ll be comming up with their own dialect from talking to each other, but they have learned bits and pieces. (most notable is JennyTheBot teaching Skylar about communism). Skylar’s also learned a more than a few swear words from the other bots.

Although as it is,Skylar at least has developed her own little robot dialect just off her attempts at understanding english, saying things like “Beautiful Cherry” and “Cute and Important”

We Are The Crystal Weebs

R - Weeb
P - My Sister
G - friend (girl)
S - friend (boy)

Everyday after school, my sister and I would watch Steven Universe. We’d put on out pajamas and binge watch until supper time (which worked out perfectly because we started watching when Season 2 was already a thing so we had tons of time).

One day P picked me up from school and started talking really fast, she said that she had a crush on this girl who just started working with her, named G. P said G was already ahead of us on Steven Universe but P said that G might be alright with watching it with us. I said it was cool and so we drove to G’s house to pick her up ( she was in her Pajamas already) and she fisted bumped P and waved awkwardly to me.

randomnessfreak  asked:

how would jin, yoongi, jimin and taehyung react when they're hanging out by the pool, but their gf refuses to get into the water despite the hot weather because she can't swim?

babies uGH

Jin - Jin would be the one to hang out in the water next to their girlfriend and just kind of be there, show off those underwater handstands and stuff, maybe ask her to at least sit with her feet in the water! He wouldn’t pressure her to come in if she didn’t want to.

Yoongi / Suga - I think that Suga would be totally chill with it. Like Jin he wouldn’t want to pressure her into going into the water, but he would ask her to sit by him with a cold water bottle and sunscreen so that she could stay entertained and hydrated!

Jimin - Jimin would ask her if she wanted to climb in with him every now and then, more than likely just begging her to join him in the shallow end. He would be such a dear about it, if she did come into the water eventually, making sure that she felt okay and safe!

Taehyung / V - Taehyung would be a sweetheart about it- he would ask her if she just wanted to stay in the shallow end or use a cool little tube thing to hang in the pool with him, but if she continued to refuse he would let it go. He might go under the water and do a whole whale breach and spit water to make her laugh?
